French psychologist Jacques Crevoisier, a trusted expert who regularly works with Arsenal's players, carried out a series of psychometric tests to see if their brain power matched their football ability.
Crevoisier, in an interview with Swedish magazine Offside, said: "One of the categories is called 'self perceived competence,' i.e. how good the player himself thinks he is. On a scale up to 9, Bendtner got 10!
"We have never seen that before. Pat Rice was sitting next to me and couldn't stop laughing.
"When Bendtner misses a chance, he is always genuinely convinced that it wasn't his fault. You might say that's a problem, and to a certain degree it can be.
"But you can also view it as this guy has an remarkably ability to come back after setbacks."
